A free Edition of SSM has been released.
A very good news many thanks to System Safety and Stem for the news
thanks for the news
here's the release info. from their site
Better than nothing...
Seems much better than the last time that I tried it...
support is second to none!!!even for freeware .. try it .. you'll see!
Thanx Stem AND Vitk...!!!!
does teh free version lack any features?
It appears to be the Full 126.96.36.1994 version, with all features for that version. There have been updates since this, which show/listed in the post#3 by "betauser2"
Hope your right..........i wrote them much earlier about the fact that my key did not work with the latest build and have heard nothing as of yet. Yes, i have a key that should work with that version.
"Please follow these steps while upgrading System Safety Monitor
with the 2.0.8 (or higher) version:
- on the registration screen check the "Enter registration key" option
and paste your new registration (license) key (see below);
- run System Safety Monitor and check the registration data in the
Your new registration (license) key:"
Their registration key is much longer than a single line (indeed, it is the longest I have come across at about 1,400 characters - not something you want to type in manually so thank goodness they allow cut'n'paste!). SSM is well worth checking out - and SSM version 2.1 onwards will not work for Win98/ME users, so they have no need to consider the full version.
I would agree with the comments on support and SysSafety have acted quickly to incorporate many user requests (I know of no other "system firewall" covering low-level disk access or Windows shutdown permissions). It is however, like other software of this type, most effective for experienced users (at least, people who know what legitimate software they have installed on their system).

Yes, and that was about the number of characters i had in my key....i have been using the program for a month now and like it......and maybe your right, maybe something got messed up with the latest download...
i'll look into it...
Nice that they decided to make a freeware version, I hope it will be able to work together with my other HIPS, but of course the payware version looks much nicer, the new registry monitor seems to be real powerful.
UPDATE: I tried installing again and nothing, so I re-downloaded and all went well with installation, including the acceptance of my key #.
I installed the free version yerterday. It looks very nice and i am using it in leaning mode now.
This was not my experience. Maybe the support gods are angry with me. Sent support an email about 5 days ago on how to configure SSM with Punkbuster and BF2. SSM and Punkbuster hard locks the system. Never received a response so I uninstalled the trial. To bad really because it did appear to be pretty slick compared to its competitors.
We apologize for the delay - your email have been filtered out by our spam filter by mistake . The support will respond right now.
You should have post your bug report to our forum as well.
System Safety Support
I agree with this 100%.
An example was when I found a conflict with SSM and Icesword (on AMD64 systems), they worked on this untill resolved (bug/problem solved well within 24 hrs of report)
Hello SSM team,... Welcome to Wilders.
I second that. My emails/bugreport have/has been answered/resolved fast as lightning.
I'm a licensed user and extremely satisfied with this great app.
System Safety Monitor Free Edition was released, build 188.8.131.525
* added several language updates.
Want to provide an update to my Post #15.
I have been in contact with the developer via email and have to agree with Stem, Infinity and egghead that support is excellent and the developer is attentive to issues brought to his attention.
Noticed the free edition when I went to SSM website then immediately check at Wilders what others in the community might have to say about it and found this thread.
I've always wanted to intall SSM but turned off by the fact that it was shareware. Now that it's got freeware, i'll try it at once and see how it pairs up with Cyberhawk.
This is really great news.
System Safety Monitor Free Edition 184.108.40.2066 was released
* now all executable files (PE) are signed with the System Safety Limited software publisher certificate.
NOTE: win9x users may not be able to verify the digital signature due to the absence of the appropriate cryptographic provider.
* sometimes SSM did not catch physical memory access attempts.
Hi,folks: It is so nice to learn that SSM has finally had a free version available. It is an excellent app, and because it is a freeware, I have an urgent temptation to use it. At present time, I have these apps in PC: outpost firewall pro, KAV v.6, Ewido plus, winpatrol plus,BlackIce and few AS. Outpost has an outstanding application/component control; KAV has a proactive defense;blackice has instrusion detection. Therefore, my question is this: Do I still need SSM, even it is an irresistable freeware?
